"I'm happy that we are facing them," he told France Football. "I have good memories of playing against Real, like the victory at the Bernabeu in 2002. They are a very strong side, but I'm sure that we will show our ability.
"We have a side of champions and we have the right mentality and concentration, but we need to be nearly perfect to win games like this and take trophies."
While Totti is clearly focused on this season's competition, he can't help but look forward to next year when the final will be held at his beloved Stadio Olimpico.
"When I heard that the Olimpico was going to host the Final next year I immediately said that I wanted to be in it," he explained.
"You can say that it's not certain, but it's destiny. You wait and see."
